Hilux Diesel Invincible X D/Cab Pick Up 2.8 D-4D Manual
The Toyota Hilux is one of the world's best known pick-up trucks. First introduced way back in 1968, it quickly established an outstanding reputation as a durable workhorse and capable off-roader. This 2021 Toyota Hilux review covers the eighth-generation model, which was launched in 2016 and received a major facelift in late 2020.
This latest Hilux brings a substantial increase in safety equipment, improved comfort and even better off-road characteristics - with the 2020 update adding a new look, engineering changes that further improve the driving experience, and a brand new 2.8-litre engine with a socking-great 204hp and 500Nm of torque.
Capitalising on the demise of the big V6-engined Volkswagen Amarok and Mercedes-Benz X-Class, and Ford's decision to discontinue the 3.2-litre Ranger, the introduction of the 2.8-litre Hilux is proving to be a big draw.
The Hilux offers better-than-average comfort for a pickup, something that has been achieved despite the continued use of leaf-spring rear suspension, which is supposed to be less compliant than the more sophisticated coil springs used by some rival models.
The interior is neat and modern, with a prominent tablet-style panel in the centre for the infotainment, which takes the form of a touchscreen on all but the most basic trim level.
Icon, Invincible and Invincible X - are all Double Cab only, feature a touchscreen infotainment system, DAB digital radio and a reversing camera, among many other additional items.
